Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.

Hey all, I am a triathlete and wondering about wether bp coffee (e.g. coffee with butter + coconut oil) is sufficient as a pre-workout "snack" to prevent katabolism when doing Intermittent Fasting? I am not aiming for the long distance but my... (more)

No, my opinion is that it's definitely not enough to prevent muscle catabolism. Fasted exercise is a fantastic tool for people that are trying to lose weight, as well as being handy for general fitness - where you'd wake up, work out, and then... (more)

Yes, in a case like this, this is probably the best commercially made energy bar I've seen. Granted, most of them are garbage. ;-) I would actually consider banana puree superior to a banana mid-race, as hypothetically more (most?) of the... (more)

If you're running 50 miles per week, that translates to 8.3 miles per day, assuming you rest 1 day per week. 8.3 miles per day is 33.3 times around a quarter mile track. It's an endurance distance. If you try to run fast, you'll suffer later. ... (more)
